kitty litter cake

I came across this recipe years ago and keep meaning to give it a shot (I'm not exactly adept in the kitchen). If I ever do get around to making this, I'll list folks' reactions here. Apparently, this cake's quite a hit at cat shows.


  • 1 box spice cake mix
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 box vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 package white sandwich cookies
  • green food coloring
  • 12 small Tootsie Rolls
  • 1 brand-new kitty litter box
  • 1 brand-new litter scoop


  1. Prepare the cake mixes and bake according to directions.
  2. Prepare pudding mix and chill until you're ready to assemble your kitty litter cake.
  3. Crumble the white sandwich cookies in small batches in a blender. They tend to stick, so scrape often.
  4. Set aside all but about 1/4 cup of the cookie crumbs. To this, add a few drops of green food coloring and mix using a fork.
  5. When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl.
  6. Toss the crumbled cake with half of the uncolored cookie crumbs, then gently combine this mix with the chilled pudding.
  7. Line the brand-new, clean kitty litter box.
  8. Put the cake and pudding mixture into the litter box.
  9. Place three unwrapped Tootsie Rolls in a microwave-safe dish, and heat them until they're soft and pliable.
  10. Shape the ends so they curve slightly and are no longer blunt. Repeat with three more Tootsie Rolls and bury them in the cake/pudding mixture.
  11. Sprinkle the remaining half of the uncolored cookie crumbs over the top.
  12. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly over the top; this is to mimic the look of chlorophyll in kitty litter.
  13. Heat the remaining Tootsie Rolls, three at a time, in the microwave until they're almost melted. Then scrape them on top of the cake.
  14. Serve with the brand-new, clean pooper scooper.
